   * Stable release.
   * Builds with free tools.
   * Doesn't build on amd64 (hoary amd64 currently uses the i386 binaries).
The quickstarter will automatically run the next time OO.org is started.

 * Go with 2.0:
   * Release scheduled for June, recently a delay was announced (timeframe?).
   * Currently doesn't build with free tools. Needs evaluation with recent free java vm's and newer snapshots.
   * Building without Java support doesn't seem an option. Components like Base (database), docbook format, etc. rely on a Java runtime.
   * Better upstream report.
   * More translations will be ready upstream, less bugs in the translation tools/framework.
   * Doesn't build on amd64 (yet).
   * Have a chance to integrate new translations.
Alternatively, add a Startup Program in your Sessions preferences:
{{{
ooffice -quickstart -nologo -nodefault

   * Spell checking needs to be integrated and/or separated out from OOo1.
   * amd64 builds
   * Handling of new translations.
   * Misc. bug fixing targeted for breezy

=== UDU BOF Agenda ===

 * OpenOffice default for Breezy (1.1.4, or 2.0)
 * Packaging and bug fixing assignments
 * Localization Work

=== UDU Pre-Work ===

 * OpenOffice 2.0 beta release on i386 and powerpc in hoary (without Java support, english only).
 * Find the name of the language pack you want through a [[http://packages.ubuntu.com/cgi-bin/search_packages.pl?keywords=myspell-&searchon=names&subword=1&version=all&release=all|search on the packages database]] (e.g. myspell-da for danish)
 * Install the package:
{{{
sudo apt-get install myspell-da
}}}
 * Voila! You might have to restart OpenOffice in order for it to recognize it.
